Ms. Samantha (Sam) Halverson
Hello Parents/Guardians and students,

My name is Sam Halverson and I am excited to join Lyle Public School as the K - 12 Art teacher for the 2017 - 2018 school year.

Education background:  I grew up in Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 2009.  I attended Riverland Community College and received my Associates in Arts degree in 2011.  From 2013 until May of 2016 I attended Minnesota State University, Mankato where I received my degree in Art Education.  During the fall of 2016 I was the long term art substitute in Cleveland, MN and this is also where I did my student teaching.  From December through this past May I was the long term art substitute in St. Peter, MN teaching in a K - 2 setting.

When I am not in the classroom I enjoy going kayaking, exploring places I haven't been before, watching movies and attending concerts.
My goal for this year is to get to know my students and to share my passion of art with them that will (hopefully) become a passion for each student in one form or another!
